Stroll the streets of Durham, NC as writer Jason Frey did recently, and it's hard not to be struck by the fact that Durham's renaissance is taking place in many structures that have found new lives. Factories are offices, department stores are homes and restaurants, and banks are becoming hotels.
In a blog for Virgin Atlantic Airlines, Frey details in words and images what makes Durham unique in the way buildings here have staying power. The piece is a testament to a place loved by those who live there, and that has a lasting effect on those who visit. Read Frey's post online.
